Ulcers and Periodontal Disease

Untreated Gum Disease Boosts Your H.Pylori and Ulcer Risk

An overwhelming percentage of the population in Madison and the greater Nashville area have some degree of gum disease. Did you know that gum disease is linked with ulcers and h. pylori bacteria? Ulcers and h.pylori bacteria are part of a long list of systemic links to periodontal disease. The larger the pockets surrounding your teeth, the bigger the risk of health problems that come as a result of an ongoing bacterial infection. Over time, the pockets around your teeth can grow and become bacterial breeding grounds and that bacteria can continually enter the bloodstream, impacting the health of your lungs, your digestive system, and more.

Gum disease can cause tooth loss and while destroying your gums it will elevate the risk of a variety of diseases and problems, including ulcers and h.pylori and h.pylori is strongly linked to stomach cancer. Madison Family Dental can help you avoid tooth loss as well as the other problems associated with periodontal disease.

Other Periodontal Disease Systemic Links

Along with ulcers and h.pylori you could also put yourself at elevated risk for cardiovascular disease, stroke, increase risk of type 2 diabetes or cause complications with type 1 diabetes. You can also increase your risk of recurring respiratory infections, boost the risk of preterm birth for pregnant women, and the list goes on. Gum disease really is very destructive and linked to the health of the mouth as well as the entire human body.
